Glenn Fleishman for TidBITS:
Don’t let the speed discussion get you down, because 802.11ac does have three distinct advantages: better coverage, better performance at greater distances, and multiple-device simultaneous transmissions.
I’d add to his “speed discussion” that, with the exception of a few luck fiber customers, most home networks simply aren’t capable of gigabit-plus networks.
That a said, Glenn certainly makes the case that 802.11ac will be a worthwhile upgrade for all of us regardless, if not a must-have upgrade.
And now I want to upgrade1.
Glenn, you bastard. ↩︎
